Summer is a fabulous time of year to visit and explore this magnificent region and Private Properties have the most luxurious and inspirational homes to stay - as featured in Margaret River's 50-strong Summer Bucket List.

As we wave goodbye to another beautiful warm Australia Day weekend, we can be tricked into thinking the summer is almost over. But it’s not, there’s still another month to enjoy glorious blue skies and the warm rays of sunshine as you explore our amazing Margaret River region in the heart of Australia’s South-West.

The region’s official tourism body recently released a Summer Bucket list – 50 strong no less with the ultimate things to do before this summer is out. Scenic helicopter flights along the coastline, SUPing in Geographe Bay, 4WDriving through Boranup Forest, dive to sunken shipwrecks, explore sections of the Cape to Cape track and many more.

Private Properties have also featured with some of our most inspirational holiday homes to stay whilst ticking off these bucket list items.

Here we have highlighted some of our favourites from the ultimate Summer Bucket list.
This is all possible, you can win a weekend escape for 2 nights in one of our amazing holiday homes – jump over to Margaret River’s Summer Bucket List here to enter the prize-draw. Entries close midday, 8th February 2019.


Our Favourite 5 To Do’s in the Margaret River region:

  • Relax with a perfect picnic at one of the many picturesque picnic spots along the beautiful coastline, for example: Meelup. Ensure you pack locally grown olive oil, organic wood-fired bread, artisanal cheeses and other fresh local products.
  • Enjoy a scenic helicopter flight over the Leeuwin-Naturaliste ridgeline, for a completely different perspective on this spectacular region.
  • Discover how pristine the region is – taste freshly shucked abalone from Augusta and wash it down with a glass of Chardonnay that this region is world renowned for.
  • Explore the 7 wonders of the Margaret River region – Boranup Forest, The Margaret River, Jewel Cave, Wilyabrup Cliffs, Cape to Cape track, Yallingup Lagoon and Meelup Regional Park.
  • Reflect on your magnificent experiences – sit back and relax in the warm, late afternoon sun with a locally crafted beer at Eagle Bay Brewery, with views to iconic Eagle Bay. Maybe indulge in a couple of brews as you tick off the adventures enjoyed and plan your next South-West escape to complete some others on the bucket list.
